Geriatrics is a medical specialty that addresses the complex needs of older adults and emphasizes maintaining health and functional independence even in the presence of chronic disease. It requires an interdisciplinary team approach, which may include: physicians, nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, geriatric psychiatrists, and family members, working together to provide comprehensive care for older adults.
